Topic for 2013-2014: exploring the global problem of maritime safety and pollution
I think that this an amazing project! The fact that when we buy something new, we just throw the old thing away, even if it's not broken is pretty scary. I think that more people and organizations should also take part in programs like this.
This Red Chair Project is so cool! I think it is a great idea to make things try to circulate. I was surprised by the issue that we just throw things away if it's not just working. The video taught me how the "red chair" could be recycle and reuse.
The Red Chair Project is a really good idea because it is not only helping students in places that need furniture, but it is helping the Earth, by reusing the old furniture. It's also interesting that furniture can become part of the solution to education for all. Since furniture is something that a person needs in order to study properly, it is an integral part to a school room.
This project really helps kids tremendously. The participants were able to look beyond their own situation by looking at the details of how this system would work. They discovered the prices each chair and table costs to transport and they also realized how much the children in Africa need those resources that the British children may take for granted. They found that the single solution was the red chair project.
I think this project is meaningful. It combine education issue and environment issue together. Sometimes the things we throw might be important to education in developing countries. It reminds people the three R - Reduce, reuse, recycle. It is really a good project. I love it. :) Because it focus mainly on one part of education, which is classroom and equipment.
This was really interesting to watch, and it was fascinating to watch the journey of the red chair. It's really scary how much goes to waste when, in reality, it can equal that amount of new products. There's no point in throwing so much away and then buying new things if you can make them into whole classrooms of material.
This kind of project is what really helps the environment, the economy, and those without education. Most people will agree that learning is hard without classroom supplies, and the Red Chair Project is something that both solves the junk problem in England and gives education supplies to those who don't have them. It's amazing how this supposed "trash" can turn out into something useful.
I think that the Red Chair project will help save money on furniture and make schools start paying attention and money on things other than furniture. This can also help the environment everywhere. Last year, the Challenge 20/20 topic was biodiversity and all Challenge 20/20 projects need to be continued, not just preserved in one year and ignored the next. So this would also not only help continue the message of biodiversity, but help in schools everywhere.
This project really shows the meaning of getting two birds with one stone. Some of the waste that we throw into our landfill can be reused for a greater good. One man's trash is another man's treasure is shown right here. While we might not need plastic chairs or such, they can be repaired it equip schools that don't have such things.
I think that this project is a fantastic idea. It uses materials that would be otherwise wasted, so that we don't have to chuck a perfectly good chair down a hole and bury it up. It's horrible that we use up so much and just throw it out just because it's been there a while, or there's a little something messed up about it, when we know that there could be someone who would do anything for that chair.
